A Sept. 14 Sports article incorrectly identified the Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School field hockey player who assisted the team's second goal in Monday's game against Whitman. The player was Brittany Kayton, not Brittany Clayton. The article also incorrectly said the game was played at Whitman; it was played at Bethesda-Chevy Chase. (Published 9/15/2004)

The No. 4 Bethesda Chevy-Chase field hockey team recovered from two losses on Saturday to beat Whitman, 2-1, yesterday in a matchup of neighboring schools. The visiting Barons outplayed the Vikings in most every phase, including taking 11 penalty corners to Whitman's one.

Bethesda-Chevy Chase's first goal came midway through the first half on a shot by Markey Mulholland off an assist from right wing Brittany Bates. Bates added a goal early in the second half off an assist from Brittany Clayton.

Whitman's goal came off its loan corner midway through the second half.

"We played a nice controlled game and dominated the right side of the attack," Bethesda-Chevy Chase Coach Amy Wood said. "Bates is extremely fast. It doesn't matter who they put on her. She came up with [the ball] every time."

On Saturday, the Barons (1-2) lost twice at the Sally Nybord tournament in Baltimore. They fell to St Stephen's/St. Agnes, 1-0, in their first game and to Severna Park, 4-1, in their second.

"It was nice to get a win to keep our spirits alive," Wood said. "We'll take a win any way we can." . . .

Senior Sarah Falk scored two goals to lead No. 6 Centreville past visiting McLean, 3-0.

Gnatiko Leads Watkins Mill

Senior Kevin Gnatiko notched his second hat trick in as many games to lead Watkins Mill to an 8-0 victory at Seneca Valley in boys' soccer.

The second-team all-state forward scored his first hat trick in a victory over Paint Branch Sept. 4. He has seven goals in three games and has sat out the second half in two of those games, Coach Jeff Heckert said.

Stags' Adedeji Commits

DeMatha center Desmond Adedeji has orally committed to Dayton, Coach Mike Jones said yesterday. Adedeji, who averaged 11.7 rebounds, 8 points and 3.5 blocks per game last season, chose the Flyers over Fordham, South Carolina, Richmond and Providence.
